This writing frame goes far beyond the typical 'J'ai un chien qui s'appelle...' and includes sentences in the perfect, imperfect, future and conditional tenses. The PDF is in colour but looks nice printed in greyscale as well. I usually print and photocopy in greyscale but put the colour version on the IWB.

Mon dictionnaire français My French dictionary

Mon dictionnaire français My French dictionary

A printable dictionary for your pupils to use as a reference but more importantly to add to throughout the year as they study new topics and encounter new words. Each page has a section where I have written common words including nouns, verbs and adjectives and a lined section for pupils to note their own additions. There are also reference pages for the following topics containing short glossaries of the essential words: greetings, days, months, seasons, colours, school equipment. There is a spare page at the back that you could print multiple times should they need more space. I recommend using treasury tags to hold the dictionary pages together. This will allow the pupils the possibility of adding extra sheets and adding revision sheets as they revise the vocabulary. If teachers request it, I will make this resource available in black and white but it looks great printed in greyscale

French: The Basics Follow Me Cards 'I have, Who has'

French: The Basics Follow Me Cards 'I have, Who has'

35 unique cards covering the basics including greetings, first questions and responses, days of the week and months of the year. Distribute the cards. The person with 'DEBUT' begins and asks the first question 'Qui a bonjour?' this prompts the next person who has the phrase 'J'ai bonjour' written on their card. They shout this out followed by their own question, 'Qui a au revoir?' The game continues like this until the last person ends with 'La Fin!' Excellent for vocabulary consolidation and to inject energy into the lesson. Gets pupils interacting and speaking and listening. Brilliant for revision lessons for all year groups.
